Re: [cdt-dev] GDB extension not working in CDT 8.4

Upon further reflection, this issue seems to me like a regression of functionality introduced in


The bug mentioned seems to take great care into making sure that the gdb integration was extensible, and the change to having org.eclipse.cdt.dsf.gdb.service.DebugNewProcessSequence.stepSetArguments(RequestMonitor) not use org.eclipse.cdt.dsf.gdb.service.IGDBBackend.getProgramArguments(), in my mind is a bug.


Does anyone else have any comments on this?

Subject: GDB extension not working in CDT 8.4


Hi all,


I recently wrote and extension to the GDB integration provided with CDT.


The people on this mailing list helped immensely, and I was able to get a GDB over SSH working for eclipse Juno.


I have been working on updating our plugin to work with eclipse 8.4 (RC4) and the only problem I have ran into so far is that my gdb session does not work any more.


The problem is, is that in Juno the GDB program args were controlled by the IGDBBackend.getProgramArguments, and now in 8.4 the DebugNewProcessSequence.stepSetArguments method just gets the args from the configuration directly. This is a problem because the args need to be “massaged” a bit for this to work.


Any suggestions on how I could get this working?]
